FATE PULLED THEM APART BUT NOT BEFORE THEY MADE A PROMISE.

TEN CHRISTMASES LATER, WILL THEIR WISH COME TRUE? . . .

As Norah battles through the bustling December crowds, she hears the notes of a song that transports her back to the most romantic week of her life.

After meeting on a blissful holiday, but knowing they had to part, a boy named Andrew made her a promise:

If they are both single on Christmas Eve in ten years' time, they will meet under the clock on Grafton Street, Dublin.

Norah has no idea if he will remember, but she has nothing to lose.

So, hoping for a Christmas miracle, she heads to Dublin. To that clock. And, maybe, to Andrew.

But it wouldn't be Christmas without a few surprises . . .

An early Christmas romance

I had difficulty accepting that any couple after having a short summer romance would agree to meet on a specific date in ten years' time, plus this idea has been used as a plot many times before. The author, Emily Bell, has succeeded where others have failed, she's written a delightfully atmospheric book that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Norah, early thirties, constantly single, a wannabe jazz singer, now a school music teacher, longingly remembers meeting and spending a week in Italy with Andrew when she was 18 years old. Planning to live in different countries, they part after agreeing to meet in ten years' time in Dublin on Christmas Eve. Receiving last minute news that her mother has made her own arrangements means Norah will be alone for Christmas. All her friends are busy with their own families and Norah decides to fulfil her promise to Andrew and go to Dublin. Andrew is always in the background of her mind, over the years they've made contact by email but, with busy lives, never manage to meet, eventually losing contact.

Written in flashbacks from Norah's last days at school, through to present time with her journey to Dublin, this is an easy and enjoyable read. Though a little predictable in places this certainly didn't spoil my enjoyment.

Quality writing full of believable and likeable characters. It's great.
